I love coffee.
In fact, I’d call myself a coffee snob.
(Along with the rest of Kansas City evidently…82% of us say we need a GOOD cup of Joe to start our day out right.)
So when I was invited to learn about the new Folgers Perfect Measures, I was hesitant about going.
I was familiar with the Folgers brand. Shoot, I had grown up on it. But in my mind, Folgers was a coffee for a different generation. An older weaker-coffee-loving generation. I was more sophisticated in my coffee choices and flavors.
See, I am a snob.
What is Folgers Perfect Measures?
Folgers Perfect Measures is a new way to enjoy your coffee in an automatic drip coffee maker. Perfect Measures comes in pre-measured portions, to make a consistent, great tasting cup every time. (So you no longer need to fight about “who” makes a better tasting cup of coffee.) Add the same number of pods and your cup will come out tasting the same way every single time.
In a nutshell, because all of the tabs are pre-portioned, you can get a consistent cup of coffee. Each tab correlates to 6 oz of water. If you want stronger coffee, add more tabs. Weaker coffee, use less tabs. It really is that easy!
Folgers Perfect Measures comes in five flavors: 100% Columbian, Breakfast Blend, Classic Roast, Classic Decaf and Black Silk (which was my favorite).
Folgers Perfect Measures Review
As I mentioned before, I am a coffee snob, so I went into this “tasting” fully believing that I would not like the coffee.
(Sure, perfect measure pods are cool, but I’m a k-cup girl who lives and dies for her Keurig.)
Can I just tell you how SHOCKED I was at HOW GOOD it was?!?! I don’t know if it has been “that long” since I had Folgers or if they reformulated their coffee, but it was good. Like, really good.
It wasn’t acidic. Great robust flavor and smooth finish. Granted, I like my coffee strong, so I added a few more pods than normal. But my cup of brewed coffee rivaled some of the Green Mountain blends I buy for my Keurig (and at a fraction of the cost – did you know a big tub is only $7.99?!?!).
The Black Silk and 100% Columbian were my favorite.
You can see my “shock and awe” on an update from Instagram last week. Seriously, it will really, really good coffee. Kansas City is a test market (along with St. Louis and Indianapolis) and Perfect Measures is available at Hy-Vee, CVS and Target.
We liked Folgers Perfect Measures so much, that we have put away the Keurig for now, and are using our “old-school” automatic drip coffee maker on a regular basis. #truth
See, even a coffee snob can learn a few things. (And for the record, Hubs likes it too.)
